CROWDS descended on Romsley on Saturday (June 11) for the Romstock 2016 music festival.

The event ran all day from midday to 9pm on the playing field on St Kenelms Road and along with the music featured food, bars and bouncy castles.

This year’s line-up included tribute acts Okasis, The Jam DRC, folk rock band Colin Hall’s Gypsy Blood, ska and soul band Rudi and the Revolvers, Stourbridge’s Esther Turner, Izzy the Push, The Starving Dogs and Elvis.

Stourbridge DJ Paul Foster played in between acts and the event was compered by former Birmingham Poet Laureate Spoz.

There was even a surprise ‘flash mob’ by the Birmingham Rock School choir

The event has been organised annually by Romsley Parish Council and was originally launched in 2012 for Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Coun Dave Powell said: “The rain clouds held off and the event attracted its biggest crowds in its five-year history.


“The atmosphere was fantastic as usual and it was great to see our community come out in force to enjoy this event.

“Feedback following the event on our Facebook and Twitter pages has been excellent and indicates that this was our most successful Romstock to date.”

He added he was really grateful to all of the sponsors, suppliers and volunteers who helped to make it such a success.

All profits from Romstock go towards funding projects in the local parish.
